Re: [0.7.2a] Portrait Pack v1.2.2

So for anyone who's having load errors, turns out the version provided just had a syntax error in the JSON, and the mod is actually 100% compatible.

Long story short, to get it to work, do this:

1. Open "data/world/factions/persean_league.faction" (without the quotes). This will be directly inside the Portrait Pack folder in the mods directory, so if your starsector is installed in C:\Program Files(x86), this would be "C:\Program Files (x86)\Fractal Softworks\Starsector\mods\Portrait pack\data\world\factions\persean_league.faction".
2. The first five lines should be this:
Code
{
"portraits":{
"standard_male":[
"standard_male":[
"graphics/portraits/prt_2.png",
Simply remove one of the duplicated lines.

Thanks, works fine :)

Are you going to update this thing?

If not, can you give us a way to add custom portraits to the game?  Preferably ones that can easily be removed whether one feels like it?
These portraits are very cool, and it would be a shame if a cool mod like this become unavailable to higher versions.

I personally didn't draw them, those are sprites ripped from Front Mission 2 and 3, plus a few other ones from TrashMan own portrait pack.

However, all of them have been tweaked to fit SS's original art a bit more. All of them have been resized via http://waifu2x.udp.jp/, which gives a neat painted effect that is hard to reproduce otherwise. I duplicated the original layer and did a high pass (radius 2) on it, set the layer as "vivid light" at roughly 40/50% opacity to get a sharper, more pronounced look, like David's original portraits. Plus some brightness/contrast/saturation/smart sharpen on top of that. Also a black background, obviously.

Like this :

Hello.
I am using GIMP and I am real greenhorn in it. I try to replicate your process in it but honestly speaking I have no idea how to do that. If its not much trouble could you make a detailed explanation how to do it in GIMP(if its even possible to do it in GIMP)?
Spoiler
Just explain it like to a complete idiot.

I don't have GIMP, so i don't know if the tools names are the same as Photoshop. Moreover, i don't quite remember how i did those to begin with.

Not much more i can tell you than what i said in the previous post : black background, strong saturation, strong contrast. You can also google for some gimp "paint effect" tutorial to help.

Dumb question here but can I use this portrait mod in conjunction with another portrait mod? Will this cause compatibility issue?

Usually - no. But some people reported slow behavior in some situation (like character creation) if too many portraits are in a game. However this takes no (or minor) effect on general gameplay, and require more than couple portrait pack installed.
